The party was pleasant. We were dancing and had a nice
time together with our friends.

in our town were closed today.
When we came home, we started to empty some boxes and

in all the other rooms yet.

First we went to a pizza restaurant, and enjoyed a good
meal of pizza. Then we went to wash. We were washing for
4 1/2 hours. I am SO happy that we are finished with our
old appartment. Unfortunately we have not sold it yet.

considering it. We are waiting to hear from them, if
they want to rent it.
Yesterday I bought the last Christmas present.
Fortunately I bought almost all of our Christmas
presents in October and November.
Charles has worked this day to get broadband to our
computer. He have also put up some stuff into our

our clothes in it.

are going to make a bathroom out of an old bedroom.
This new bathroom is not
quite finished yet. We are waiting for a friend of ours, who
is a plumber.
For over a week, we have had
lots of boxes and furnitures over our whole house. This
weekend I have managed to fix the kitchen and the livingroom,
so now the house looks tidy and nice. But we have lots of
stuff in some of the bedrooms, which we have not got in the
correct places yet.
have not had time to bake any Christmas cookies yet. But I
will start soon. Perhaps this weekend (15th to 17th).
have not moved our computer to our new house yet. We will not
get internet until December 19th in our new house, so that's
why we still are having our computer in our old appartment.
But I am not in our old appartment very often, so I am not
updating my blog so often, now.
Thursday (14th), 4 friends of mine and I are going to wash our
old appartment. I am so grateful that they are willing to use
their busy time before Christmas to help me with this.
Thuesday December 5th
We are still using every
spare minute (after work), on trying to get our stuff in order
in our new house.
Yesterday, we went to get the
old appartment, to get the aquarium. It went well! All the
fishes survived the moving.
Charles emptyed the freezer,
too, yesterday, but we could mot move it yet. It's full of ice.
We had to let it stay in the appartment, until today. We are
going to move the freezer to our new house, today. We have
borrowed some space in Charles' sisters freezer, until we will
get our own freezer in our new house today.
We have gotten a bit in
order, in our new house now. But still there are lots of boxes
and some furnitures that we have not got in the correct places
yet. And there are still some stuff left in our old appartment.
But we are very happy that we have moved. I am looking forward
to empty the appartment, and get it washed.
not moved our computer yet. It may take about 14 days until we
will get internet, at our new house, so we are keeping the
computer in our old appartment, as long as possible.

We have decorated our new
house with Advent candles and lights.
We have now been sleeping for
3 nights in our new house. We are not finished with our new
bathroom. Charles has been working with the new bathroom for
two days, now. But, while we are waiting for the new bathroom
to finish, we are using the small, old bathroom. (We are going
to use this old bathroom, as a washing room, for our washing
machine, when our new bathroom is finished.)
Both Charles and I have been
using a lot of time trying to get in order. And we are going
to use even more time doing this.
This will take a lot of time,
to finish working with our new house, and to move our stuff to
our new house.
Friday December 1st
We are going to move in to
our new house this weekend. It will take a few days until I am
able to update my Web Site and blog, and reply to e-mails.
